Old News, New Post

ALL [PRE-LJ] F&TF NEWS POSTS


For those of you already on F&tF, none of this is new information. We're just making sure the F&tF LJ has all of the same information as the main site. The following news posts are from most recent to oldest:

[8.10.11] FOREIGN LANGUAGE FIC
Hey all! Another update already! I received a question about non-English fic and there is a new classification when you tag fics now, with alternate languages to choose from. Obviously, we cannot run quality control on non-English fic as the only language any of our mods is fluent in is German, but that's a risk we're willing to take so that all language fic may be posted to F&tF.

UPDATE: We have a new mod! User DEVERS1218 has graciously come on to proof all Italian, French and Spanish written fic and Magz will be in charge of any German written fic.

If we've not added a language you would like to post fic in please let us know and it will be added.

Please do not tag English-written fic with an alternate language if it has a second language featured relevant to the plot; this does not count as a non-English fic.


[8.10.11] FANVIDEOS
We've just successfully tested video embedding and posting! Hooray! This means that Kurtofsky fanvideos are now approved to post. You cannot upload videos to the site, but you are able to embed them using embed or iframe tags (which means any of your Youtube hosted fanvids are good to go)!

And, as always, if something went wrong or if you find anything else not working, please let us know so we can fix it!


[8.9.11] NEW SKINS
Hi, everyone! I'm Magz, and I'll be Tess's co-pilot as far as admin on Fancy & the Fury is concerned.

I've set up two new skins for the site: BLANC and NOIR. Feel free to check them out. If there are any kinks that need to be worked out, let me know!

We're still working on ironing a few wrinkles out of the code for the site, but there should be no major issues at this point. Again, if you run into something broken, let Tess or myself know and one of us will poke it until it's fixed.


[8.9.11] SKIN BORKED
Somehow while I was sleeping our DARK skin got a little... messed up. I'll be working on the problem today and, hopefully, we'll be back to having both DARK and LIGHT available for both those whose eyes need darker screens, and those who need lighter.

For now, the LIGHT theme does still work. We're very sorry for any inconveniences!

A quick reminder: It is in our TOS that our authors are required to read and adhere to our Submission Rules.

Again, sorry for the inconvenience and I'll be figuring it out very soon!

EDIT1: Okay, found out something new! If your DARK theme is not working, switch to LIGHT and then right back to DARK and you should be fine. It's not a fix but it's a good temporary solution for while we're figuring out what's going on.

EDIT2: I think I've fixed the problem. If anyone still has trouble with the DARK skin, please let me know in the comments.


[8.8.11] LAUNCH
Half a week and more than a couple of days running on no sleep, and Fancy & the Fury is open for business! The lack of sleep? Completely worth it. I'm so excited and proud to be able to bring my fellow shippers and friends the first website dedicated to Kurtofsky fanfic, fanart and graphics.

We have two admins, myself, and Magz, and two mods, Jordyn and Rachel.

Welcome, and we hope you enjoy your stay. If you have any suggestions, feel free to email us via the contact page and we'll take them all into consideration and put the suggestions into effect if we all agree on it.
